Sun, 10/17

Sunday, October 17, 2010      3 comments

Well, we worked really, really hard this week - the bedroom took two coats of paint, then we moved everything back into the room on Friday. I'm so glad to be back in my own bed (the guest room where we slept for over a week is only a double bed... Read more

I'm looking 'up' even though 'things' are not

Tuesday, October 12, 2010      3 comments

I mentioned yesterday that I'm struggling with some issues. Well, none of the situations have changed, but my attitude is a little better. (Thank you to those of you who prayed) . I thank God that He has kept me from gorging on bad-for-me foo... Read more

Monday's moan

Monday, October 11, 2010      3 comments

I've taken a shower just now, so I may begin to feel human again soon. Before my shower, I painted for six hours....just took a 15 minute break for lunch. We're not finished yet, but at least we've made good headway today. That, and the fact... Read more

We started painting the master bedroom today

Saturday, October 09, 2010      2 comments

We had to 'scuff' (sand) all the shiny surfaces (they'd been painted with oil paint), and that took 2-1/2 hrs this morning. After lunch, I crawled around on my hands and knees, painting all the baseboards. That took another 2-1/2 hrs. I'm bus... Read more

bedroom, continued

Thursday, October 07, 2010      3 comments

Yes, we should have painted it before getting new carpet (which looks nice, by the way), but we didn't think of it. We are planning to buy paint shortly and get started on the walls and trim. The carpet does look nice, but is more mustard-colo... Read more

Move-Everything-Out-of-The-Bedroom day

Tuesday, October 05, 2010      4 comments

We're to get new bedroom carpeting tomorrow, so today was move-everything-out-of-the-bed
room day. It took 2-1/2 hrs and I'm bushed! To give you some idea, we have a headboard w/an attached light bridge, all attached to two tall (heavy!) '... Read more

e(xtraordinary) Women's Conference

Monday, October 04, 2010      6 comments

I just spent a WONDERFUL weekend in Roanoke, VA at the annual conference. Friday evening we were splitting our sides laughing at Chondra Pierce, then thoroughly enjoyed a mini-concert by Mercy Me. Saturday, we had several inspirational speaker... Read more

A happy report

I stayed ahead of whatever pain there was, and am not even on aspirin or Tylenol today. Thank you, God. I am MOST grateful. My mouth is still somewhat sore - not painful - but it will get better each day. Enuf dental talk! Friday noon, ... Read more

God is SO good! I don't have a specific thing to tell, but just that I'm rejoicing that God IS SO GOOD! Just got home from yet another dental appt. (I think I'm paying for his 5 new computers all by myself). He finished the prep work for... Read more

Fall IS here!

Monday, September 27, 2010      1 comments

Today is rainy, and only in the mid-60's - a teeny bit cooler than 'normal' for us. But I'm celebrating the fact that we aren't 92 degrees, as we were a few days ago! I also am thanking God (profusely) for the gentle, steady much-needed ra... Read more

"They" tell us it's fall (or autumn), but someone forgot to tell 'Mother Nature' - it was 90 degrees yesterday and today is supposed to be the same! Our normal average temp this time of year is the mid-70's. We had the AC off for many days, bu... Read more

In no particular order - ...for the beautiful days we've been having. ...for the rain we're getting - we really needed it ...for my husband, who is so thoughtful ...for my Mother, who led me to salvation in Christ ...for my ability ... Read more

Better Late Than Never

Saturday, September 18, 2010      2 comments

I bought The Spark months and months ago, but it only collected dust until recently I started reading it while treadmilling. I'd lost weight while on SP, but 'plateau-ed' then regained some of it. I'm unhappy w/myself for doing that. Then... Read more

Uh-oh, scary article

Wednesday, September 01, 2010      1 comments

I just read a health article on SP that seems to be saying that people who are mentally active (such as enjoying crosswords puzzles for a long time) will show greater decline if alzheimer's hits. Hmmmm. Too bad. I'm going to keep on doing thi... Read more

Hi Y'all, I set the alarm for 6:30 this a.m. (and finally got up about 10 min later); drank an Instant Breakfast then went to the Fitness Center (of the resort where we are) and spent 30 min on the treadmill. I'm so NOT!!!! an early mornin... Read more
